Lys Perez will star as the rising stand-up comic, Josefina, in the upcoming west coast premiere of La Egoìsta by Erlina Ortiz which will be directed by Daphnie Sicre at the Skylight Theatre in Los Angeles. La Egoìsta will kick off the 2023 season which will highlight works created and directed by women. This also marks Skylight Theatre's 40th anniversary season.

From Skylight Theatre website:

Josefina is a stand-up comic on the rise who takes nothing seriously. Her younger sister Betsaida, on the other hand, takes everything seriously. When a sudden diagnosis upends Betsaida's life, they're thrown together to rediscover all the affection, friction, and humor that still fuels their relationship. La Egoista thrillingly combines stand-up and theater to explore the bonds between sisters, the cost of healthcare, and the hilariously fine line between selfish and selfless.

La Egoista won the 2022 National Latine Playwrights Award

World Premiere produced by Actors Theatre of Louisville. Executive Artistic Director Robert Barry Fleming. La Egoista was commissioned and developed by Live & In Color, and received a reading at the 2022 Latinx Theatre Commons (LTC) Comedy Carnaval.
